Cloth Diapering Newborn

I have great pleasure recommending other mommas to convert to cloth diaper in this Chatterbox of mine. I found many benefits on cloth diapering & somehow I wish I have started as early as I can, say, by the time Baby Hambali just a newborn.

Well, needless to say, I’ve started cloth diapering Baby Hambali when he was about 5 months old with Onesize Pocket Diaper & Sized Pocket Diaper. Experienced-wise, I never tried prefold which is much recommended for cloth diapering newborn or we most familar by the name of lampin / flat muslin cloth. I did used lampin for Hanafi during the confinement but opt for sposies when Baby Hambali’s turn with reason, no one to man & care the lampin.

As for now, seeing & hearing many Chit-Chatters of mine & other blogger friends are expecting an arrival of new family member (wink!) or just simply says…pregnant, I love to list out few great articles & tips from CD-gurus @ Mamas in here.

I’ve learnt a lot from these lovely CD Mommas on initial stage of my cloth diapering journey & to those who has been thinking OR contemplating OR has decided to cloth diapering soon for your newborn, at your pregnancy state now, is a great start for you to :-


Why? It is understandable & agreed buying one piece CD only will cost you more than one pack of disposable. Correct? But, in the long run, you save more because it is not like your child will be using it for one month but the least 2 years. So, I fully suggest as you are preparing items for your expected little joy’s arrival, why not include the purchases of CD as well? By doing this, you won’t feel the burden too much by spending a bomb at one go. Besides, you must take note that cloth diapering a newborn is slightly differ from 3 months to 4 months old baby so you need to know how & what is the best solution.

Please read all these great articles & may it provide lots of assistance that I intent it to do so.

You can always check, peep & read these 3 blogs that I mentioned earlier & those articles & tips it is from them!

  2. Yatie, high cost of water bill? THAT"S A MYTH! Take it from me, we never seen any rise on our water bill & you will get the same response from other CD Mommas.Watch CD like u wash your clothes & you can do CD laundry 2 to 3 days at one go! Even when you wash your clothes you wait till full load, kan untuk jimat?

  5. Alhamdulillah, kudos to you for cloth-diapering and spreading the love! I CD'd my eldest at 6 months and 2nd one from birth. I can't imagine going back to using disposables 24/7. Life after CD is so much better and rash-free too!
